Ho-hum. Another day, more asshattery…

from the United Methodist Church:

A Southern California church nativity scene is featuring a bloody Trayvon Martin in place of the infant Jesus in an effort to stir a community conversation about gun violence.

The Los Angeles Times reports Sunday (http://lat.ms/1bw7Qnq ) that the nativity scene on the lawn of the Claremont United Methodist Church was created by congregant and artist John Zachary. Martin is shown in a hoodie, slumped over and bleeding.

But critics on Facebook have blasted the depiction as sacrilege.

And you know, I suppose I could get myself worked up into some righteous outrage, but it’s like getting mad about water being wet, or the sky being blue. This is who they are. This is what they do. And the world keeps turning. As Sailorcurt said in comments at JayG’s place, “The United Methodists are all about subverting the basic tenets of their own professed religion for political purposes. They’ve been doing it for decades…why change now?”

I do agree with pretty much everything JayG said, though.

    I encourage people to do things like this IF they are of the mind to. Helps me determine who isn’t really paying attention to the details and who lets the media influence them more it should.

    And definitely tells me who isn’t actually reading what is in the Bible.
